PRAGUE: A film by Georges Méliès labeled Imperceptible Transmutations / Les Transmutations imperceptibles (1904) has been found at the Czech National Film Archives.

The film actually contains three films glued together on the original nitrate material, among them Match du prestidigitation, which by now was considered lost.

Czech National Film Archives, which have 22 films by Méliès so far, are planning to show the new-found film in cinemas as part of the Méliès collection.
